I made a special trip alone to Kunshan and then on to Suzhou in 2015, May June. I had studied some of the Kunshan economy and also knew about zhouzhuang. From Kunshan (one stop by fast train from Pudong) by bus to zhouzhuang just a...More
I wonderful place to visit and experience the old architecture and the serenity of the water blending through the town. The boat ride is a must do. You get a more intimate experience and dynamic view as you sail through the heart of the city....More
In the pas I had heard of Suzhou but never of Zhouzhuang. We did a boat tour, spent half a day in the water town and watched real small boats go by à la Venitian. People smiling all over and even singing while rowing the...More

Overwhelmed by shops (a few classy ones), restaurants and tour groups (although we made the mistake of visiting on a holiday weekend), Zhouzhuang is still worth a visit as a fine example of a Yangtze Delta water town. About one hour by taxi from Jinji...More
It’s very authentic in setting, but things are expensive there. Car park is about 15 min walk from entrance. Town has lots of eateries and B&B. A boat ride will give you great experience of the water town.

There is a daily evening performance show called "Zhouzhuang in Four Seasons" and it is a must-watch. The first large-scale water performance and an acclaimed world class theater production, "Zhouzhuang in Four Seasons" unveils the folk customs and traditions of the authentic and original Zhouzhuang lifestyle through the love story of Shen Wansan, the richest businessman in the region back in Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and Lu Liniang.
"Zhouzhuang in Four Seasons" is staged daily from 7-8 pm April until November at the water stage, regular tickets are 150 yuan (US$ 23) per person and VIP tickets are 280 yuan.
You could combine Suzhou and Zhouzhang. Travel from Shanghai to Suzhou and stay overnight, travel onto Zhouzhang the next morning, visit the water town then and return to Shanghai the following morning
